I received a tracking number today...fedex....should have it by the end of the week. Too bad there is not a baseball diamond in sight for me for a while.

I would be more than happy to take a sledge hammer and hit you with it! :wave:

I almost pulled the trigger on your buddies MVP4000. I am jut scared I won't like it!

Working a game with one on, unless you take a square shot, proves nothing. Fellas, don't wait until game day, then hope it works. I've fractured a rib, and trust me, it's no fun. Get a bat (tape up the end), and your old hardshell, and take some good thumps with that. Then work your way up to the same velocity with the new rig, and lets us know what you think.

A lot of you muggs already have one of these, but aren't barking about it, yet. What gives?

i felt the same way before i switched to an HSM. The MVP4000 is amazing. The field of vision is almost like you are not wearing a mask. It is my favorite piece of gear.

BTW when i said i can feel the "punch" , i wasn't implying that it was hurting me , but yes i can feel it . I have been have my 15 yr old son punch me (im sure he enjoys this) , in different spots on the CP . I can definitely feel the hits , again it isn't hurting but ......... ?

I agree with this. Guys were punching me today and yes I can feel it, but it wasn't like it was hurting me.

We need some impact comparisons with other protectors.

When I tested the Davishield, i took shots in it, my Platinum, an MLU, and a Douglas. Direct blows, in different parts, and made notes.

That's the kinda of non-scientific testing we need.

And yeah, when I took a rib shot in the Davishield I jumped around, and used profane language, much like Jim Evans.

The silence is deafening, guys. Profoundly deafening.

      Never used, still in the bag with the fresh smell....Force 3 V2 Chest Protector...Inbox your best offer...

      Looking for a new chest protector because my old one is a soft shell. Any recommendations on what I should and should not get and where can I get a good deal on one? Any advice helps thanks!

      I’m looking for a good low profile chest protector with SMALL shoulder pads. I’m about 5’6, 160 with an athletic build. I currently wear the Champion Body Armor, which is a good fit, but the shoulder pads are too big. I’ve tried the Wilson Gold, but the shoulder pads still seem too big. Maybe I’m trippin’, but I think I look like a linebacker. Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hello all,
      I have been using a West Vest Gold for the past couple of seasons and while the protection has been phenomenal, the whole thing feels bulky and does leave my lower ribs (it is the largest sized of the three sizes Wilson offers) and abdomen exposed. With that in mind, I'm looking at getting a Force 3 protector after reading some of the smaller reviews in places like ump-attire, but was looking to see if anyone had anymore feedback that was a bit more in-depth. Primarily using it for varsity level high school ball
       
      Any help/feedback would be appreciated greatly

      Does anyone have experience with this CP?  I was doing some research for a new CP yesterday and came across a new web site, allamericansportsshop.net.  Is this brand the same as Champion?  I assume it is but with a new logo.  I have never seen this model before.  I may have just overlooked it. This looks like a much better CP than they have made in the past. Looks very solid.  I would like to see what the harness looks also.  I was about just about set on going with the Schutt XV HDX until I saw this.  They are the same price, but this looks a like it would fit the body a little better. Any suggestions?
